DVD I PC to Monitor Cable Question

Hello,

New PC and new LG 21" Monitor.

Regarding the PC to Flat panel monitor cable used: the digital type (not VGA):

I guess it's called a DVD I to DVD I (male/male)

Is it the "Dual Link" type that I need ? (guess I don't know what is meant by dual-link)

Thanks,
Bob

Hope this helps,

From OP:

Hi,

Really good article.
Thanks for sending the link.

I should have realized there was probably a Wiki on it.

The stuff I did find on Google wasn't all that clear; I missed the wiki one.

Happy Holidays.

Thanks,
Bob
